want to have a little fun. >> you betcha. bill: we'll go to the board show you a map here. remind our viewers these are the 11 battleground states in gray that are too close to call. ed, what is the state of the race today? >> i think the president's team is on the defense and i think the romney team is on the offense and that's a very difficult place for an incumbent president to be. i think we're gaining in places like florida, virginia, north carolina, which are key states for us. ohio, the ultimate battle feed, rasmussen has i had dead-even. my sense is that, it's building and building and building for romney and i think he could have a victory that may even expand beyond the 270 electoral votes. bill: okay. that may involve, maybe a wisconsin, a pennsylvania, michigan, if the rumors are true. now listen, i want to go to results in 2008, okay? this is what president obama's doing over the next two days now. he will make stops in the following states. all states by the way that he won four years ago. he will be in iowa.
